Lazaroo – Thursday, July 30, 2009

Jul 30, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in over-the-top trust:

“In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—“
(Ephesians 1:4-5)

O Jesus.

Before You spoke the worlds into existence You looked down through the eons of time…

…and picked me!

in love.

Not because I would never sin.

I have.

Not because I was better than the rest.

I’m not.

Not because of anything I would do to deserve it.

I don’t.

But because You took one eternal look at me

and loved me.

I have given myself to You.

I am now Your child.

Adopted.

Because You love me.

Even now – through all my faults and failures

You take pleasure in me.

You actually enjoy me –

me!

Because long ago You exercised Your good, pleasing, perfect, irresistible will

and fell in love with me.

    Amazing! I’d never looked at it that way before,and that is totally true!Thanks so much for sharing that,Steve.

  2. Steve Says:

    Thank you, Mary Ann.

  3. Mary Ann Says:

    Amen and Amen, Pastor Steve and Mr. Ferry.

  4. Ken Ferry Says:

    WOW!

    Furthermore, any attempt to pay back or otherwise earn this incredible love only cheapens the gift and insults the Giver. As far as I can figure, the only proper response to this love is to love God back and to love those around me who have also received, or may some day receive, His love.
